A Long Time Coming: The PiMiniMint Project!

The idea of having a computer in an Altoids tin came to me back when in early 2012, shortly after the original Raspberry Pi came out. With the release of the Pi Zero, this became a possibility. The first version of the PiMiniMint contains a screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 32GB of storage, an infrared camera, and a full-sized USB port. When I decided to add a battery, I realized the camera needed to be removed. The current vision of the PiMiniMint contains a battery life of around 6-8hrs, a 2″ screen, 32GB of storage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a full-sized USB port (in the form of an OTG cable).

NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Display – 2.0″ Diagonal: Yes, this is an adorable miniature television! The visible display measures only 2.0″ diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use – simply connect 6-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display! There’s a little button to adjust the LED backlight brightness (5 levels) – there is no other adjustment available but we found that the color and contrast look great right out of the box.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
